Every Time I Die originally formed in 1998 in Buffalo, New York and signed with the Ferret Music label, quickly gaining fan attention and critical acclaim for their energetic and raucous live performances. The band would eventually leave the Ferret label for Epitaph Records in 2008 and have released eight full-length studio albums since their inception. Their latest studio LP, Low Teens, was released on the Epitaph label in 2016 to much fanfare.
The group has since confirmed they completed work on their ninth full-length studio album before the coronavirus pandemic escalated earlier this year. According to the band, they will release the album when they are able to safely tour in support of it. The band’s current lineup consists of Keith Buckley (vocals), Jordan Buckley (lead guitar), Andy Williams (rhythm guitar), Micciche and Clayton “Goose” Holyoak (drums).
